To Honor National Nurses Week, Help RNs Win Safe Staffing Ratios
National Nurses United, 5/9/13
Celebrate National Nurses Week by Helping Nurses win Safe Staffing Ratio Legislation.
Let's Also Vote NNU's Executive Director, RoseAnn DeMoro a Top Healthcare Leader.
National Nurses United, the nation’s largest organization of nurses, today greeted the re-introduction of a bill in the House of Representatives by Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois – appropriately during Nurses Week – that would set specific limits on the numbers of patients each RN can care for in hospitals throughout the U.S. Let's show strong RN solidarity for this exciting national legislation and statewide ratios campaigns below.
Please add your name to three letters supporting safe staffing ratios:
- Sign the letter supporting the DC Patient Protection Act
(The DC Patient Protection Act)
- Sign the letter supporting Illinois RNs in their quest for safe staffing
(The Hospital Patient Protection Act, H.B. 0012)
- Sign the letter to Congress requesting support for the National Ratios Bill
(The Nurse Staffing Standards for Patient Quality Care Act, H.R. 2187)
LET'S VOTE RoseAnn DeMoro A top leader in healthcare again in 2013
